Cold in Germany


Nicole is running around Germany, taking pictures of everything that there is to photograph. Here a snapshot we took during one of our walks though the north-German forests.
It is not as cold as it should be. And raining every day. It is difficult enough to have some entertainment in a small place like Bad Muender (Does that explain the high number of drug consumers here??), but with rain...
It is scary to see half the shops in towns like Hameln or Bad Muender being closed, up for sale or struggling to survive. The German Government announced that the business world is vvery positive and that the economy is growing. Not sure if they are talking about the same country.

Off to Germany

We are hopping on board a KLM flight to Duesseldorf tonight.
For the next two weeks we will be in Germany.

Spike is with is buddies in Taiping. For the first time he got angry with another dog.
It is speculated that Spike doesn't know that he is a dog...

Nicole has pulled out all her winter clothes. After 3 years in 29 Degrees all year round it will be fun to see cold weather again.
